It is run by the City’s Legal Services Department together with the City Traffic Service and will take place at the Cape Town Civic Centre for three days from Monday 15 April 2019 to 17 April 2019 between 8am and 2pm.

A team consisting of administrative staff, prosecutors and traffic officers will be on the Concourse Level of the Cape Town Civic Centre to assist motorists with their fines and or warrants of arrests.

Motorists must bring their identity documents as well as a copy of the fines for which they would like to have the amounts reduced.

There will be no blanket reduction but the prosecutor will assess each case individually.
